The Summer Bag Guide: Lightweight, Stylish, and Timeless

Summer Bags Your Closet Needs

Summer is coming, and that means it's time to pack everything you need for your next trip. Whether you're headed to the beach or on a long road trip, there are some items that every traveler should carry with them. If you're going somewhere warm and sunny, consider investing in these must-have summer bags!

1. Canvas beach bag

A canvas beach bag is the perfect companion for your summer adventures. Its carry-all size is big enough to hold all your summer essentials and it's durability is perfect for withstanding sandy beaches. It's easy to clean and get the sand off of too! On top of all that it's also so cute that you'll want to use it all year long. 

One thing I love is that a canvas beach bag can be used for a variety of purposes. It's not only great for the beach, pool or lake but you can use it as a gym bag, or even an overnight bag!

2. Raffia tote

Raffia totes are a must-have for summer. They're lightweight, easy to carry and versatile enough to be used as a beach bag, grocery bag or shoulder bag. You can also use it as an accessory for your outfit--add some jewelry or a necklace with them! The chic raffia material will give you an easy breezy summer feel that will make you feel like you're in paradise all day long!

3. Seagrass beach bag

Seagrass beach bags are a must have for your summer bag collection. They're cute, and can be used for carrying all your belongings to the beach or pool. You can fit towels, sunscreen and more inside these bags before heading out on your vacation or weekend getaway. The size and durability of seagrass beach bags allows these adorable totes to also come in handy when you're shopping at local farmers markets or grocery stores. 

Seagrass is an eco-friendly material that's perfect for any type of weather or season, making it ideal for everyday use. A seagrass beach bag will last you years, since it's so durable! Seagrass is also biodegradable, so when it does eventually wear out, it won't be adding to landfills around the world.

4. Seagrass mini tote

If you're looking for a purse that's both chic and high-end, seagrass mini tote bags are the perfect option. It's lightweight and durable material can be easily dressed up or down depending on the occasion. These totes also make for excellent vacation bags because they're small but can carry everything you need, whether it be your keys, wallet and phone or even a small makeup kit! Plus these unique shapes make them so fun and perfect to catch eyes and get others asking where you got it! The perfect dinner bag - small in size and looks fantastic dressed up with a dress or nice pants!

5. Canvas bag

We talked canvas beach bags now let's talk canvas totes! These chic bags are classic and versatile in style and can be worn with almost any outfit. The canvas fabric is different than the basket look of the seagrass and raffia materials but still has a nice summer air about it. Like the others it's also durable, so you won't have to worry about your bag falling apart after only a few uses.

  • Great Carry All Bag: Canvas bags make great carryalls because they're lightweight and easy to carry around. They're perfect for carrying books and other items when you're on the go, whether you're traveling or just going out with friends in town.

  • Cute Summer Vacation Bag: If you're planning on taking a trip this summer (or even if not), consider bringing along one of these canvas totes as part of your luggage ensemble! They'll add some extra style while keeping everything organized so nothing gets lost during travel time--and they'll keep things nice and cool inside thanks to their open design which allows air flow throughout each compartment without letting anything escape through zippers or buttons.

6. Sling bag

Sling bags are great for summer, as they're lightweight and can easily be slung over your shoulder. They're also perfect for beach trips and casual outings. You can use a sling bag to carry groceries, or if you need to bring your laptop or books with you somewhere, however I do recommend keeping it light as sling bags are often made of light fabric and aren't quiet as durable as the others. My favorite place to carry a sling bag is a quick trip to the beach (packed with just my book, a towel, and sunglasses) or when headed to my local bookshop for my next read.

7. Mini shoulder bag

If you're looking for a bag that will compliment your outfit and make it look more polished, then this mini shoulder bag is the way to go. It's versatile enough to be used in any situation--whether it be on a summer trip or even just an everyday purse. These bags are great if you're looking for something small to carry the essentials in when going out on the town but are not a fan of the look of the seagrass mini tote bags.

8. Cooler bag

The cooler bag is a must have for all your trips to the beach or lake this summer! The insulated lining will keep your perishables cool while keeping them safe from the sun and sand. What makes these bags really great is that they are cute and small, because who wants to be lugging around a typical huge and ugly cooler like everyone else!

And so our search for the perfect summer bag comes to an end. I hope that this article has helped you find the right summer bag that fits all your needs and you can't live with out!
